    When I was a child, I attended a Convent School and was distraught when I was told that animals cannot go to heaven as they have no souls…..As soon as I got home that day, I immediately baptised my cat so that she WOULD be able to go to heaven as there was no way I wanted to go there if there were no animals there.

    Now, I could care less about going to “heaven”. If there are no animals and “god” prefers humans, I am running, not walking in the opposite direction to him.

    Ari… Bravo, my friend. Leave that made-up, mentally disturbed god behind. I was raised fundamentalist Baptist and was taught from the pulpit (and my mother) the same thing: animals have no souls. I disagreed with that from the get-go. But there were years of grief and worry and anger (while I was still a christian) over the animals that god would not let me see again in heaven.
